Long time ago, in the relatively small Black Sea coastal city of Varna, Julian Kalchev a.k.a. Virtually J became a kind of local pioneer and an inspiration for a whole generation, being the first to explore ways to compose and produce electronic music programmed, edited, played on a PC. He's been important part of the scene since then, contributing, for example, to the essential VA series "Kokaku" on Jisatsuken. With his last LP released 20 years ago (yes, in 2001) and after having...

"Fame is an Addiction" sounds like a cassette you found while walking on the beach, half burried in the sand, case slightly warped by the heat of the sun, little pebbles and bits of seashells embedded inside, tape loose and almost melted. You rescue it, clean it up, spool it in, and when you play it you discover that the noise of the sea waves somehow got imprinted onto it and melded with the music. Every tune is deep within its own comfortable bed of noise, each sound treading...

MUSIC FOR PEOPLE WITH NO WORK, FAMILY OR INTERNET "A collection of pieces from the last 10 years gathered around the idea of listening as a state of trance. Listening without distraction, without measuring time, without hurry. Clearing the mind, a bit of melancholy, an endless loop, a hovering thought, urban meditation somewhere in the suburbs. Instead of TV, instead of a smartphone: "I have to do something, I have to be somewhere". Slow listening, room for feelings."...

"Basically the project came into being from the job I do. I work in the waste/recycling industry and have done for 3 years. When I first started I was absolutely mortified at how wasteful we are in this country and likely most of the developed world.

"Having retired as the drone act Mystified, Thomas Park became interested in working on some ideas for live performance.  A friend, Jack Hertz, shared a simple piece of html code that would allow a user to mix various sounds together using embedded media players. Thomas worked with the code, developing different versions. Some had video loops, some had more loops or fewer. He also worked on selecting which loops to contain in these mixing consoles, paying attention to how they...

Baba llaga are: Miguel A. García (xedh, valvula antirretorno), Raul Dominguez (armadillo concreto), Daniel Llaria (bujero) and Itziar Markiegi (teta fx). They gathered together to do some fine experimental/industrial improvised sound with a lot of emphasis on the visual aspect of the performance when they play live. It's not the 'man with a laptop' outfit, it's a real, living band. Their first release "El ultimo viaje de Vasilissa" ("The last travel of Vasilissa") is...

Tokee's new album "Stages", though, can be described as having roots in the early 80' synth wave and synth pop. This specific sound, amazingly aesthetically preserved also by the remixers with their unique twists on side B of the tape, and the very...

"OSIRUS V: Coming Forth by Day" is the Mahorka debut of Moki Mcfly, a music producer from Manila, Philippines, known for his atmospheric instrumental productions, incorporating sound elements from nature and extensive use of jazz and tagalog samples. Warm, inviting washes of liquid sounds, jazz-influenced arrangements and intricate production are forged and kept from drifting too far into introspection by a powerful pensive vein, but build slowly into a storm of fuzzy synth sounds and...

This must be the most meditative and organic and least cold album by Renzo Peressi. Coming under his Mendigo moniker, "Concienca" (consciosness) is a journey through a maditating mind, result of quietly looking back in search of deeper meanings. The atmosphere is much warmer than his usual sound with much more lively feeling to it, although the familiar microsound, drones and manipulated field recordings approach, the usage of factory noises, heavy machinnery, traffic, engines and...

"Music for Blank Film is the result of several years of recording, deconstructing and remixing a number of original themes. The music was conceived with the notion that the listener would construct mental imagery to coincide with the varying soundscapes presented, hence the title. Instrumentation includes synthesizers, guitar, trombone, percussive and noise elements. Although the suite of pieces begins with quite a dark ambient and sombre tone, eventually the mood lifts, so that by the...

He’s run the long-standing net-label for over a decade, and continues to renew his own sound within the 4T Thieves moniker.
